Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 19

Hey everyone, it’s lovely to see you all again. Today for Day #19, our question is:

Drama that started your obsession towards a particular actor/actress

For those who have followed the blog for quite a while now, I’m sure you can guess who my choice might be (at least in terms of actress more so than drama) since I perhaps obsess about her more than it is necessary. She has been an actress that I have adored for years and someone who I am sure to follow for many more years to come.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 12

Hello my lovely readers back to the blog. Hopefully, some of you won’t kill me after reading today’s entry xD

Actor or actress you dislike for reasons you can’t explain

Now, I’m not someone who seems to have an opinion on everything, so to be honest, this list was slightly difficult to put together. To ensure that I don’t start an uncontrollable rant, I’ve condensed this list to 2 actors and 2 actresses (hopefully that ain’t a lot in retrospect)

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 6

arm-30day-challenge-d6

Welcome back to the 6th day of the Asian Drama Challenge! Here is today’s question:

Your favourite older actors/actresses

I really love this question, simply because this is a rarely considered question. I’ve come across so many actors and actresses over the years who I have fallen for despite the age gap. To make sure I don’t ramble away with this post, I’ve limited to 3 actors and 3 actresses! (It was still really hard to limit this list!!!)

Let’s start with the gents, shall we?

“Hwang Jin Yi” review: Wow, it hit me just as hard as the first time…

I am a guilty victim of the “rewatch whole Kdramas whilst procrastinating” illness. And I did exactly that just two days ago when I should have concentrated on finishing off some homework due the following morning.

In one night too.

Yep, judge me. Go ahead, because I know 100% that what I did was wrong ><

The thing about this illness (and yes, I consider it an illness since I feel that it is severely contagious) is that it does pros and cons (yes, surprisingly there are pros in this!) The cons are quite obvious, but the inconspicuous pros are what I want to focus on slightly.

Pros about revisiting an old drama that you watched years ago (ignoring the whole “I just stayed up all night to finish this marathon” bit) is that you get to discover points and highlights in the drama that you probably never noticed the first time around. With my experience of reliving the world of “Hwang Jin Yi”, I’ve come to realise that there is a good reason why good Kdramas are just good. And so, here is my review that will entail you all of my 2nd experience with “Hwang Jin Yi”!

And yeah, this post possibly may not be spoiler-free; you have been warned!

An absolutely stunning photo taken~~

What I’ve Been Up To Lately: Life And Drama Update

Hey ya’ll! How’s it going?? Me? A lot actually, both in life and in drama-land actually. Initially, I was planning to do a post solely about a particular drama I’m currently watching, but then I had realised that I was taking too long to do it. If I feel like it, maybe I’ll do recaps about it or something however for now, I think you all deserve an explanation for what has been happening in my life so far, and why have I gone MIA for the last 2 weeks or so.

Moving sucks. The end.

Moving sucks. The end.

So firstly, as I may have stated in another post previously, I am currently moving out of my current home (with the family) to a new one. The main issue was the fact that we didn’t choose to move out; we’ve been forced out of our current place in order for the house to be redone and resold to someone else. Since that happened, my family and I have been house hunting for weeks, and doing nothing else but. Just a couple of days ago, we had finally settled ourselves with a place, and are currently in the process of selling furniture, packing things up and organising the house in order to make sure that nothing is left behind. It’s been fun to actually discover things that I never knew existed (or find things that I never knew I had). I’m sure many of you probably understands that feeling but for me, it is foreign yet refreshing.

So, for the past two weeks or so, my house has transformed to a place piled with boxes left, right and centre containing my entire life that I had grown up knowing and loving. My life has been entirely turned upside down, and my mind has been just frazzled and unable to think and write anything. Hence the lack of posts and motivation to do anything but just pack and make sure that I get ready for university which starts in the next two weeks or so. I do apologise that I haven’t been posting anything; hopefully once I move into my new place, and get under way with uni, I will be more organised and consistent with my posts. It sucks that I haven’t been  able to write anything lately however, I wish to provide you with the best that I can do, rather than just anything that comes to mind just for the sack of posting something.

Anyway, the purpose of this post (apart from the obvious) was to actually inform you as to what I have been watching, what I’ve been checking out and finally what I have been following about to the point of pure madness…let’s start, shall we??
